31 October 2016 Living Lightly Community Fair

Cultivate a new way of living at the FREE Living Lightly Community Fair on Saturday, November 12, at the Coffs Regional Community Gardens in Combine Street.

Hosted in a living, growing example of how to be eco-friendly, the Fair is a grassroots, family-friendly, roll up the sleeves and get hands-on event full of free workshops, creative activities and kid-friendly fun.

You can simply sit back and soak up the atmosphere in the relaxing and shady Gardens while listening to bluegrass legends ‘The Mid North’ and sampling the yummy and affordable food on offer, while the kids make the most of the cardboard cubby village.

Or rummage in the Living Lightly mini market featuring the grooviest of secondhand and upcycled wares. Better still - get hands-on with some of the all-day FREE workshops and craft activities including driftwood mobile making, Aboriginal crafts, sustainable card making and so much more.
